    Good morning! We are headed to Disney in three days! We want to upgrade our 5 day park hopper to an Incredi pass. Can we do this before we get there? And, can we apply gift cards to the transaction? Thank you!!

    Hi Sheri, welcome to planDisney, and oh my goodness you are full of good news!  First, you will be at Walt Disney World in just 3 days, AND you want to upgrade your ticket to an Annual Pass!  Woohoo!

    Upgrading your ticket to an Annual Pass is a great way to squeeze in some extra magic!  You can upgrade your theme park tickets to a Disney Annual Pass by paying the difference between the cost of your theme park ticket and the Annual Pass you are purchasing.  Because you are not a Florida resident, you would be upgrading to the Disney Incredi-Pass, which is the same Annual Pass that I have.  You have until the last day of your ticket entitlement to upgrade but as you alluded to, you can call Existing Tickets to upgrade before heading down to Walt Disney World.  

    Once you are at Walt Disney World, you will need to activate your Annual Pass by visiting a ticket booth at any of the theme parks or the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs.  Simply bring the information you received when you purchased your annual pass along with photo identification.  Once you have a valid annual pass, you can immediately begin to use it for discounts for merchandise and at select dining locations.  You'll want to keep your photo ID with you at all times as oftentimes you are asked to show your photo ID when using the discount.

    Once you officially become a Disney Annual Passholder, you'll want to bookmark this Annual Passholder Program page as it nicely outlines all the perks and discounts available to Annual Passholders.  I also have the special offers page bookmarked as a quick way to find discounts that might be available at Disney resort hotels.  There is also a dedicated phone number for Annual Passholders should you ever need it.

    Have a magical vacation!
